Data transfer tools

The tools used to collect and transfer data can have a big impact on participation and quality of the data received. Here is a list of the tools and surveys we use to collect our data.

  • Clinical Audit Platform

    The Clinical Audit Platform will provide a single standard technical platform for all of the clinical audits. This will be easily accessible by all NHS staff providing data.

  • Estates Returns Information Collection (ERIC)

    This is the main central data collection for estates and facilities services from the NHS containing information dating back to 1999/2000.

  • NHS Safety Thermometer

    The NHS Safety Thermometer is a local improvement tool for measuring, monitoring and analysing patient harms and 'harm free' care.

  • Secure Electronic File Transfer

    Secure Electronic File Transfer (SEFT) allows an NHS Digital Business Team to transfer data to and from any external organisation electronically and securely. The service allows us to provide a secure wrapper around any file, irrespective of file type, size, structure or data content.

  • Strategic Data Collection Service (SDCS)

    The Strategic Data Collection Service (SDCS) is a secure data collection system which accepts uploads of submissions in a variety of formats. The system is under constant review and enables NHS Digital to customise bespoke data collections.
